Pampered Chef: Fundraiser Who pays out for Fundraisers?

  1. Is it PC that donates a set percentage? Is it the consultant? What percentage usually gets donated and does the consultant still make anything from the fundraiser or is it a total donation?

    TIA!

  2. The Pampered Chef donates 10-15% depeding on sales. (Up to $600.00 10% over $600.00- 15%) This is not a consultant donation. We as consultants get a reduced commission by 5% for doing fundraisers. (If your commision is 20% on a regular show then you would get 15%for a fundraiser.

    Some consultants do choose to make aditional donations from their commision. This is up to you if you choose to do this.

    commission for fundraisers

    Actually, commission for fundraisers is a flat 15% (or 17% once a consultant has achieved the $15,000 carreer sales level). The sales of the fundraiser do count for your total sales for the month (to determine your commission rate for other shows and sales for that month).

    BUT the good thing about doing fundraisers (besides helping a worthy cause) is that it gives you exposure, leads and bookings that you might not have otherwise had!

  4. Beth is right. I read back what I wrote and realized how misleading it sounded. I know how hard it is when you get conflicting answers so thought I would tell you to listen to her. :)

    Different Rules in Canada

    Caroline,

    The above answers were great but it's a little different here in Canada. On page E10 of our RFS it says " 10% if sales are under $800, 15% if over $800. An additional $4 will be contributed for every future show booking from the fund-raiser."

    We receive 15% commission regardless of the show total, until we reach $20,000 in career sales at which point it is increased to 17%.

    Hope that helps. I'm in Ontario too and just did a fundraiser in March.

  6. Good catch on noticing that she was in Canada. I will have to get use to checking that from now on.

    I love seeing how the company works differently in other contries.

    Thanks for clarifying for us.
     
  7. Many thanks to ...

    Dawn, Beth & Jodi for taking the time to respond (and even catching on I'm a Canuck! LOL!)

    I just got my kit box and am drowning in papers to read but that's cool... I'm loving it!

    Thanks again,
    Caroline in TO

    Good Luck To You!

    I wish you the best in your business!! Keep up your excitement!!

    I have to admit that I didn't catch that you were in Canada - I need to watch closer too!! And for our US consultants: PC also contributes for bookings - $3 for each one!

    Caroline,

    Welcome to PC! If you have any questions come up specific to Canada, please feel free to email me at hayward@cogeco.ca.

    We're practically neighbours...LOL I live in Trenton, and my hubby's family is in Mississauga, we're up there regularly.

    Jodi

    P.S. What's with the 5 a.m. postings from you? :eek: I'm NO where near sociable before 8 am... :p

  10. LOL! Yeah, I'm up early since that's when I "work" -- before kids & hubby wake up. It's about the only time I'm guaranteed not to have to fight for the 'puter! :D

    Thanks for the offer of help - I'll be sure to wave the white flag when I need some. I have several years experience in Direct Sales as I'm a Senior Manager for another home-based business that I do... so for now, PC is kind of a side-thing for me. We'll see where it goes!!

    Cheers from TO,

    Caroline
